When the weather is nice, some people take advantage and pull out their grills. There are few things better than throwing some shish kebabs on and watching them cook to perfection. If you want to make the best ones in the world, here are a few things to remember along the way.
If you have decided to use metal skewers, this does not apply to you in any way. Those who have the wooden variety will need to soak them in water for about 30 minutes before adding their food and placing it on the grill. This will stop them from burning and affecting the taste of your food and/or your presentation.
Add Cooking Spray To Your Skewers
Have you ever had a shish kebab and you had to struggle to remove all of your food? This is a pain that can be prevented quite simply. All you need to do is spray a light coating of cooking spray on the skewer before placing your food. This means that everything will slide right off when it is time to eat.
Use A Marinade
This is especially important for people who are adding meat to their shish kebabs. There is nothing like biting into a flavorful morsel that has been allowed to marinate for a while. Make sure there is an acidic component, whether it be orange juice, wine or something else. This will not only impart flavor, but it will tenderize your meat.
Keep in mind that marinade should be discarded once the raw meat is removed. If you would like a dipping sauce, create a fresh batch. This will ensure there are no issues with cross-contamination.
The next time you break out the grill and decide to make some shish kebabs you will be prepared. Using this advice will result in making the best you have ever tasted.
